This very exotic and special park is very beautiful and worth a look. You can walk a whole round through it in like 25 minutes and it’s a great place to relax. Also the entrance is free, so you can basically just go in there....More

Went here on our first day, very beautiful gardens. There are many places here for nice photos. The giant ficus tree was awe inspiring. It's not a huge garden but it is easy to find and you could easily spend an hour here.

Very nice place, Tim Burton-esque trees, univers. Lake with ducks to feed, playground for kids, bar with snacks, WC, and it's free. Cool to spend some hours with kids.
